With KOTD 2.6.30-master_20090718013908_97e05475 I didn't saw that problem and
there seems to be no kernel configuration change that obviously triggers that
problem. Any ideas what's broken ? Should I file a bug against virtualbox or
is this a kernel problem ?
Talk to the virtualbox developers, this looks like they need to fix
their code to handle the way NMI is now handled in the kernel.
